In 2020, these were the top five most downloaded pieces:

Real estate investors set to move up the risk curve in 2020

17 January 2020, London – Institutional investors have signalled a greater appetite for risk in the year ahead, according to the global Investment Intentions Survey 2020, published today by INREV, ANREV and PREA. Twenty percent of global investors investing in Europe – including a majority of those domiciled in the region – cited ‘opportunity’ as their preferred investment style.  This is up from 9.8% last year and marks the highest percentage since 2009.  

Gap between actual and target allocations to real estate narrows dramatically

Investors still set to hike commitments, in defiance of late cycle


10 January, London – Current average allocations to real estate increased to 10.0% from 8.9% in 2018, against an increase in target allocations from 10.2% to 10.4%, significantly narrowing the gap between the two for the first time, according to the global Investment Intentions Survey 2019, published today by INREV, ANREV and PREA.  

Investors set to increase allocations to real estate in 2018

16 January 2018, London – Fifty six percent of global investors plan to increase their exposure to real estate over the next 24 months, targeting an average 10.2% of total capital allocation. This would amount to a minimum commitment of just over €51 billion this year. Data from the global Investment Intentions Survey 2018, published today by INREV, ANREV and PREA, suggest continued positive sentiment toward real estate in general, and non-listed real estate in particular. The survey reinforces a continuing favourable upward trend. Regionally, investors from Europe are expected to make the most significant allocations to real estate, accounting for 57.7% of total investment capital in 2018. North American investors will likely commit 25.2%, while those from Asia Pacific are forecasting 17.1%. Europe is also the regional destination of choice likely to attract an anticipated 41.2% of allocated capital, followed by the Americas (35.2%) and Asia Pacific (17.4%). However, given that more than half of this allocation will come from Europe the region could see a net outflow, while the Americas could see a net inflow, of capital.

Over €50 billion anticipated for real estate investment in 2017

A minimum of €52.6 billion of capital is expected to be invested in global real estate during 2017.  This represents a total average target allocation of 11.5% for investors - a gain of 1.5% from current allocations.  These results from the global Investment Intentions Survey 2017, published today by INREV, ANREV and PREA, underline a continuing strong appetite for real estate among institutional investors, despite continuing global economic and geopolitical uncertainty.
